for president obama four years ago and we had no idea what we were doing, i can tell you the folks, regardless of who the chair is and the folks at j.t.f. are there ready for you when you walk in the door and do the logistical lift. we make sure the president's imprint is put on one of these events. in the parade as the colonel mentioned along with all of these military elements, there are 58 different groups. 58 different groups, floats and vehicles. these are from all 50 states. they are everything from the virginia military institute just across the river in virginia, down in southern virginia, which has marched in a number of inaugural parades through a group of maine of unicyclists, which are called the jim dandies. they will pass review in front of the white house. the president will stand and watch the entire review and enjoy the parade along with thousands of folks who will come down and be watching from along the parade route. once that ends, the president goes inside and the official part of his day is done. and he gets ready for the inaugural balls. as you have seen and reported, th
conason. this week's "new york times" magazine faces the changing face of the obama administration, four years after it first took office. at the time of the first inaugural, "new york times" magazine published 52 portraits of the president's top aides and advisers. i can remember reading it, looking at it. now peter is writing roughly half of the people in the photo essay are gone. some embittered by realities they did not anticipate or cast aside by a president cutting losses. the gauzy hope of 2009 has faded into the stacker realism of 2013. a washington they promised to transform is as divided as ever. peter, you know, i haven't seen the sunday times magazine, obviously, yet, but i can recall at issue, and we all recall what's encountered, what the country has encountered over the last four years. my question to you is, some of the people seem to be embittered, some of the people seem resentful of what didn't happen. are they unrealistic about what the country endured, what happened four years ago? i mean, what happened within the first three or four months of the obama administratio
," after which president obama will be as mored the oath of office. this will be done like it was four years ago and is done traditionally by supreme court justice john roberts, and there'll actually be two bibles used in this time. the first is the lincoln bible. this was used by the president four years ago, the same bible that was used by president lincoln when he was sworn in in 1861, and that will be on top of the king family bible which has been graciously provided for this ceremony by the king family. excuse me. kelly clarkson will then sing "my country 'tis of thee." we're very excited that richard blanco will be joining us. he is the youngest-ever inaugural poet, the first lgbt inaugural poet and the first latino inaugural poet. reverend louis leon of st. johns church here in lafayette park will also be overseeing the traditional service that kicks off the president's day on monday, will be offering the benediction, and the ceremony will end with beyonce singing the national anthem. a quick thing on the bibles. obviously, these are very, very historic bibles, and these are ver

monday. the second term begins. my how times change. here's my take, four years ago, obama stood before america and spoke eloquently of his hopes for the future. he proclaimed unity of purpose over conflict and discord. his words, his words indeed. fast forward, two days ago, president obama engaged in extreme conflict and discord when he directly attacked his political opponents. the republicans he said were suspicious about whether the government should make sure kids in poverty get enough to eat. the republicans. his words. clearly the tone has changed. and then we have the economic backdrop to the inauguration. four years ago it was desperate times. but the president offered hope that we would spend a ton of money and recover quickly. fast forward, we've spent the money. we have not recovered. the economy has been in the doldrums for four long years and our debt is truly out of control. that's why there is no euphoria this time around. the thrill is gone. and the hope really did not pan out. instead, we have national anxiety. we look more and more like europe. we're deeper and deepe
